I couldn't handle the pear and grape etching, so we filled it with wood filler.
I kept the existing hardware and just painted with a color I had on hand.
After my hubby sanded the whole thing down, he primed the entire thing.
Then painted it 'English Apple'.
I really love it! The color is bright and bold and it has tons of drawers for storage.
Here are the painted hardware. I went with a metal color since our room has a lot of metal accents.
And the space where our 'fruit basket' was will never be missed!
SO worth the 5 dollars (plus paint, of course).
